This bra is just so wrong for me in every way. I'm not quite sure why I didn't return it, but I'm pretty sure I've never worn this bra anywhere except around my house, to try it on. 4 years ago. Since then, it has sat so far in the back of my closet, that when I found it today, my first response was "I own this?"
On my body, this is a disaster. For my build, the cups are too far apart, the wires are too wide and low to provide any real support or uplift, and the straps are cute but uncomfortable. In addition, where the ... wire ends, there is a high and stiff straight line between the wire and the straps that chafes against my armpit when I move.
My boobs, which are "relaxed", are not at all uplifted - I am spilling out the sides of the cup and getting quad-boob, yet the top of the cup still has some gaping. Because the bra is not really containing my breasts, I think their mass is pushing the wires straight into my body.The top of the gore is not touching my body and the bra does not stay directly below my breasts, yet the underwires and bottom of the gore are digging into my ribs/sternum. When I first got it, I probably thought this was because the band was too small, but upon measuring it, the band actually stretches to be a little big on me (this is probably why it slides down).
Despite all this, I can see why I bought the bra. It's really pretty! For someone with shallower or perkier breasts that don't need as much "help" to stay in place, this bra could work. It might also be suited better for someone whose breasts are farther apart than mine. 1.5 - 2 cm is comfortable for me, 2.5 cm at the smallest part is not.
